Criminal, Vol. 2: Lawless, by Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips (Image Comics, 2015)

A man absconds from military service to seek revenge for his younger brother’s death. Issues 6-10 of Criminal are collected here, offering a second punchy (literally and figuratively) noir tale of violence, robbery, sex, and inevitability. Consistently great, and pleasantly uncompromising in its focus on genre thrills and character. Recommended.

My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
